A quick primer: ceramides are lipid molecules found naturally in our skin. They work to bind skin cells together, sealing in moisture and blocking out harmful microbes. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin produces fewer ceramides, leading to dryness, loss of firmness, and other signs of aging. Enter Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid. Packed with a small army of ceramides, this derm-developed formula delivers a powerful dose of moisture, plus ingredients that strengthen and smooth skin for the long haul.
I purchased this product (full sized) and the companion product after first trying them out in the Help Me kit. I knew I wanted something to smooth up and 'youthen' my skin, so I perused the Birch Box reviews and decided to take the plunge on the Dr. Jart combo kit - Am I ever pleased! I didn't wait to run out of the smaller sizes before ordering the full size products.
The Skin Saver (ceramidin liquid) is the thinnner if the two, more of a serum than a lotion or cream. My skin absorbs it really quickly. I guess you don't HAVE to use the companion product, but I do. They are worth every penny! My skin is smooth, clear and feels (to me) more elastic. Mind you, my skin is nearly 47 years old and I spend quite a bit of time out of doors, so maybe I need a mini facial every day.
Caveat: DO NOT apply and then go out in the sun. Wear sunscreen or a product with SPF - your 'new skin' will be irratated. It only took me once to learn my lesson.
I have never tried products from Dr. Jart+ before, so I didn't know what to expect. The Ceramidin Liquid is a watery gel - like texture, not at all as thick as I imagined. So far it has done a perfect job of moisturizing my combination skin, with no breakouts.5
This product is amazing, It evened out my skin texture, skin tone and has reduced breakouts. My skin appears brighter, smoother and just gives off a beautiful glow. I use this morning and night under my favorite skin oil. My skin loves this stuff & I will not stop using it. Plus you get so much product for your hard earned dollars. This product also makes my makeup last longer & provides the right amount of moisture. I have oily skin & this product doesn't make my face any shinier.5
I received a sample of this product in one of my Birchboxes and while I'm usually skeptical about putting any new product on my face, I decided to give this one a go. I have very sensitive skin and suffer from occasional acne breakouts. Most of the time I'd say my face is more oily than dry, but I recently started using a retinol serum prescribed by my derm, which occasionally causes me to have patches of dry, flaky skin - small price to pay for clear skin, but still unpleasant looking. So, I started using this product sporadically whenever one of said dry patches occurred. Thankfully, it didn't irritate my skin or cause any breakouts and it brought my dry and dull skin back to life after only a couple uses. A little goes a long way too - my sample bottle lasted for months.
Well, a couple weeks ago I stupidly tried some exfoliating cleansing type product (that I got from somewhere else - not Birchbox) and it burned my face. Not only was my face bright red for a full 24 hours after use, but my face was so dry and chapped that my face continued to hurt long after the redness subsided. Frustrated, in pain and afraid to put anything on my face for fear that I'd only make things worse, I got out my Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid sample bottle only to realize my little miracle in a bottle was just about empty. Figures, I somehow made that small bottle last for months, only to run out when I've burned my darn face. LOL.
So, I decided to order the full bottle and couldn't be more pleased that I did. My red face sitch has come and gone and now I'm using it consistently rather than sporadically. I use it twice a day - in the morning before my tinted moisturizer and at night after I wash my face. My skin just feels much better when I use this product and looks better too. Point of my story.... product effectively moisturizes skin without causing breakouts or any irritation to very sensitive, acne-prone skin. Helps to relieve that uncomfortable feeling associated with really dry skin.
I want to love this product....it goes on smooth, it feels good, its not heavy.....however, I didn't notice any significant difference in my skin. I get rosy red cheeks in the winter time, and dry patches around my chin and mouth. It helped the dry patches a little, but my not the redness of my skin. I also ran out of the cream pretty quickly before the liquid....I wish they gave you a bigger amount of the cream since I think most people with dry skin tend to use more of it. All in all, I think this may help some people but it really didn't help me.2
If you have dry, sensitive, redness and inflamation prone skin like mine, this is for you! The smell is gentle and does not irritate my skin. I found it very soothing and calming. I have had nothing but great experiences with dr. Jart products. Would like to try more in the line that would address my skin concern5
i recd a small sample. i did not use it until today....sample was so small, i did not realize what it was for, i lost the info card. i like the feel and lightness of the liquid. I am ordering the full size.
i will update my results after regular use.
I have combination skin--most of my body has very dry skin and my face varies from oily to dry depending on its mood. I also have been blessed with wonderful adult acne and (adding to the joy) my skin can easily become dried out and irritated if I use most acne products. I find that the Ceramidin liquid and cream has been a great balance of moisture without causing any new breakouts. I also think it is promoting my skin to heal some acne scars. I switched over to this combo for night and day. Love it!!5
I haven't tried this yet but it looks interesting! So I can't wait to try it !3
I received a sample of this last year and liked it som much that I bought a full size. It's like a drink for your skin. I discovered this while traveling on a three week vacation throughout Europe last summer that had me on and off airplanes several times. As you know the air on board can be very drying. Well this stuff was like a drink of water for my face. Now I use it regularly even when not traveling, but it's sure to be in my bag next time I'm on a plane too!5
